US: The Marine Spill Response Corporation (MSRC) has entered into a contract with Ocean Imaging Corporation for advanced remote sensing capability. Ocean Imaging will provide its proprietary aerial surveillance technology as part of MSRC”s overall strategy for enhancing the ability to tactically position response resources in the optimal areas of oil migration for responding to spills. The technology provided by Ocean Imaging Corporation enables MSRC to significantly enhance its day and night aerial remote sensing through infrared/multi-spectral technology.
“Ocean Imaging has a decades-long history in unique, innovative remote sensing technology development and its transfer to operational use, including ocean condition maps for fishing fleets to monitoring changes in coastal ecosystems to tracking spilled oil at sea, ” Dr Jan Svejkovsky, president of Ocean Imaging.
